Finally admitting that Democrats have fully embraced abortion on demand throughout pregnancy

Maybe it was because he is not running again that pro-abortion Senator Ben Cardin of Maryland didn’t even pretend that there was point in pregnancy where the unborn child could or should be protected from the abortionist. Or it could be that he had never been asked so directly.

Appearing onFox News Sunday, former vice president Mike Pence said: “Joe Biden and the Democrats actually support taxpayer funding of abortion all the way up to the moment of birth. That’s supported by maybe ten percent of the American people.”

Host Shannon Beam asked Sen. Cardin to respond. (The following was transcribed by John McCormack. Thank you, John. Emphasis is added):

BREAM: So you signed on to a Senate bill called the Women’s Health Protection Act of 2023. Critics say it goes far beyond Roe, and it actually codifies what the former vice president was saying there. So what is the Democrats’ position? Where do you draw the line? 

CARDIN: Well, we support Roe v. Wade. We thought that was established law. It was established law for almost 50 years. The Supreme Court decision was a radical decision that reversed the rights of women to make their own health-care decisions. So we support Roe v. Wade, we support the right of women to be able to make their own decisions about their reproductive rights, and it shouldn’t be subservient to what state legislatures are doing. 

BREAM: But what about the states where it’s actually legal up until the due date? Is that something Democrats support? 

CARDIN: We support the right of women to make their own decisions. This is a personal decision made by women with the advice of their doctors and their family, and we don’t think we should try to tell women when they can make those decisions

BREAM: Is there a cut-off for you before that point? 

CARDIN: No, to me, it’s a reproductive — it’s a health-care decision. It’s up to women to make that decision

As McCormack pointed out, Cardin’s position is now mainstream in the increasingly unhinged Democrat party: “The position explicitly articulated by Cardin is shared by every Democrat but one in the Senate and one in the House who back the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA).”

How can that be? No limitation whatsoever?
It could be that Democrats have finally walked off the cliff. They have converted killing a vibrant 32 week old baby into a “health-care decision.” In many ways it reminiscent of talking about the unborn baby as “the pregnancy.” It’s okay to kill an abstraction—“the pregnancy” —rather than a flesh and blood baby.

Whatever the reason, the Democrats leap into abortion abyss makes the differences between themselves and Republicans crystal-clear.
